It IS installed. I've deleted and reinstalled. I wiped Windows this weekend and reinstalled. Nothing works. I'm getting pretty fed up with being told that it's required and that it "improves playback" when the damn thing has been installed from Day 1.

Please right click on your Start menu icon and select Windows PowerShell (Admin). Run:

Code: Select all

cd \ Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers > packages.txt
This will create a packages.txt file in the root of your C drive. Please email that to support@silicondust.com.
